This morning I went to Marl Bed Flats with my father and a friend of mine. We had a pretty great time. We saw all the usual suspects: Sedge Wrens, Eastern Meadowlarks, Northern Harrier, Yellowlegs, Black-bellied Whistling Ducks, and Sora. The biggest highlight for me was seeing a Merlin in the distance–the first I’ve seen this this fall.
